An article by Mario Tarradell in the Dallas Morning News on Sunday July 26 asks if music vets are worth going to see. A friend of mine ribbed me at work about what the author said about the Allman Brothers. I asked..." Who did he reccomend to go see ?"
I guess he figued I had him on that one.
Anyway I don't think the author really gets it.
The list but without his spin until the Bros..
Maze / Frankie Beverly no
Willie, Bob and J Mellencamp yes
Judas Priest and Whitesnake yes
Paul McCartney no
Def Leppard, Poison and Cheap Trick yes...roflmao
Elvis Costello yes
Depeche Mode yes
Metallica yes
U2 yes

and

The Allman Brothers Band

Worth it ? No
Why ?
Lynyrd Skynyrd probably stole the groups thunder, is there really a need to see another veteran Southern rock ensemble so soon after the last one stopped in the area ?

Lets see, Skynyrd was early July, Allmans are in October. I guess thats soon enough in his mind, but you can see by what the dude wrote, he's actually pretty cluesless. I'm not saying this in critical way, he's just clueless.

Paul McCartney and the ABB are the ONLY people on that list I would pay to go and see ... the rest would have to play a free concert and buy me copious ammounts of alcohol to entice any interest from me at all .....

Me? I'm waiting on that Depeche Mode unplugged tour.

Seriously, though - a lot of papers hire writers and then assign them to the music beat. You get some seriously vacuous columns out of these types. They should be put back on the pot hole report!

Cheap Trick is a fun band to see, but I'd never sit through Poison and Def Leopard to get to them. I've got tickets for the Willie-Bob Mellonhead show in Atlanta this Thursday. Gonna try to time my arrival to miss one of 'em. Guess which one!

I'm in total agreement with
Harvey. The Brothers and McCartney are the only ones I'd pay to see on that list. Whitesnake ! ???????????? C'mon

God I'm old.....U2.

I remember when they were babies.

Back in 82, they put on one of the best shows I ever saw. I was mightily impressed by The Edge.

I wouldn't go accross the street to see McCartney if he was playing in the park for free.

Willie, Mellencamp, and Dylan this Summer was one of the best shows I've ever seen, if for no other reason than Willie. Mellencamp was surprisingly good as well. As for Bobby D., I think I understood about 6 words of his vocals all night.

To equate Skynyrd with ABB is like saying AC/DC and Black Sabbath are the same. Ign'nt.

As for the Dylan/Nelson/ Melloncamp bill, a pal of mine saw it a few weeks back and said Willie Nelson opened, so, be forewarned - get there early to see Willie, and plan on taking an hour-long beer break after....

Maybe the author of that piece is the guy who goes to concerts and yells Freebird all night regardless of who's on stage! Guess it's one man's opinion - enough said!

I'm guessing that the guy has not the awareness that the ABB are not a nostalgia act from the standpoint of playing the same greatest hits setlist every single night. At one ABB show a couple years ago the people behind me kept complaining about how long the songs were and afterwords they couldn't believe they didn't play this song or that song. Even after all these years, there are tons of people that are totally foreign to the rotating setlist concept.

Well, I've got tickets to see both The Allmans & McCartney, & I'm looking forward to both shows!! I'd also like to see Judas Priest/Whitesnake, but not sure I'll make it to that show. Metallica would be awesome as well.

I'm pretty sure Mellencamp comes on after Willie, so don't be late. Also, the Wiyos open up the show, and I'm sort of curious about them (got a good recommendation from a local DJ). We'll be in Lot A, the Orch 1, row G. See you out there!

I think the opposite side of the coin plays better. It is we, the ones who "Understand" rotating set lists, Long songs and this one or that one....that are in the minority. It is our awareness of these things that separates us from the masses. The people complaining about long songs represent the majority...to the majority, the ABB ....are a nostalgia act.

He proved he was insane when he said to pass on the ABB because Lynyrd Skynyrd was just in town.

If ever there was a definition of insane...

He was probably just pissed because they didn't play Ramblin' Man.

Well, add Willie/Bob/John to the "pay to see".

Agree with the rest. (except the 'copious amounts of alcohol"...I can't drink anymore, Dr's orders...so I guess I won't be seeing them. )

(I've seen Elvis Costello & U2 twice each already, and Cheap Trick once...which is enough for them.)

Definitely. I love the ABB more than any band without a doubt. But if they played to 100000 people before or after LS and you took a survey, LS would win for sure. They have far more "radio" songs that people know. Plus long solos lose the majority of people. That doesn't make anyone good or bad or better. It is just a fact. Doesn't matter if only one member is left. Some people go to shows just to have fun and not pick apart every moment. They just enjoy the tunes.

People have opinions. Hell someone here wrote that they wouldn't see Sir Paul which to me is insane. McCartney plays for hours with a stellar band playing some of the greatest songs ever written. How could that be bad? I guess we all see things differently.

Just one less guy at the show which is fine by me. Hell I wish all of you would stop going to shows so they would start playing bars.
